Dong Quai

Dong quai has been used most commonly to treat gynecological problems, and has at times, been referred to as the “female herb” because of its variety of health benefits for women.

Dong quai can increase estrogen levels, is full of phytoestrogens, increases metabolic actions and strengthens the immune system. All of these functions can help fight night sweats with very few negative side effects.

Black Cohosh

Black cohosh can be used to treat  menopause symptoms.Black cohosh is a flowering, phytoestrogenic plant that grows in the woods of eastern North America. The word cohosh means “knobby rough roots” and was first used as a medicine by Native American Tribes. It is well-known that black cohosh benefits the female reproductive system and can be used to treat menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, depression, and irregular sleeping patterns. Many women have reported benefiting from black cohosh, saying that when using it they sleep better, experience relief from night sweats and stress, have more energy and are able to regain control of their lives.


Ginseng is a root that the Native Americans, Chinese, and Koreans have been using for centuries because of its medicinal properties. Ginseng works in two ways. The first is on a hormonal level; by substituting a woman's estrogen with phytoestrogens to increase the levels of estrogen in the body. The second is via ginsenosides, a compound commonly known to increase stamina and energy levels in humans. Since ginseng is full of phytoestrogens, it can help boost decreased estrogen levels.

Ginseng works on a hormonal level by substituting human hormones with phytoestrogens.It is because of the low and fluctuating levels of estrogen and other hormones that women experience night sweats. By adding ginseng into your diet, you will be able to combat night sweats, hot flashes, and other symptoms without having to use the controversial hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
